*Note*: I watched the first season of Magi before I got into the manga. While the anime is very good, aside from the Balbadd arc, it is very different and much more rushed than the manga. I highly recommend both, but the manga is definitely the one I prefer.

Magi Labyrinth of Magic is something unique in the popular long-running shounen manga category alongside such renowned works like One Piece, Bleach, Naruto, and Fairy Tail. I may not be the best person to compare Magi to those works, but I must say that from what I know about all of them, none of them come anywhere read more

When I first read Magi, I assumed from the cover that it was of a cute little boy doing cute things, something to read to pass the time between weekly updates of other manga. However, Magi has been a charming surprise with the depth of its storyline and the efforts it puts into its setting. While it is, to some extent, a manga of a cute little boy doing cute things, Magi ambitiously tries to reach out on social issues such as politics and slavery while maintaining some humanity on every side of the issue.

User Recommendations

Hunter x Hunter and Magi are similar in ways in which the main male protagonists has a set goal in mind. With that goal, they strive to accomplish it with any means and along the way encounter various obstacles - some that puts their lives at risk while others tests their abilities to their max potentials.

As with any fantasy setting goes, expect an adventure and fighting. There are are also various arcs for both manga involving many of the characters with twists and revelations.

There is also decent comedy present in both series mainly composing of the interactions between the main characters. (bro-like moments). Nonetheless, these two series offers a ride of fantasy and adventure you won't forget.
I'm surprised no one's recommended Fullmetal Alchemist yet. Magi and FMA are similar in that they both started out quite light-hearted and may fool you into thinking they're all about action and adventure. However, they're actually much deeper than that. There is great focus on the politics, the different sides scheming against each other. Character development is also given much thought in both series, and despite the big casts, both series manage to make most of them likable.
